"So beautiful and sophisticated"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I debated a bit before initially purchasing the mask due to the slightly higher cost, but once I saw it in person I think every cent was worth it. The mask is beautifully done, sophisticated, and makes a stunning centerpiece on one of our smaller walls. The mask itself is pretty large and demands attention. It contrasts beautifully with our white wall and neutral tone furniture.

"As expected simply lovely"

I was waiting on this item to arrive and now that it has it hangs gloriously on my wall. Words I do not have enough. The bird that is placed upon the top of the head mask draws a person in to want to see more. I would buy masks made by him again.
